As the need gets greater, so must the effort
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 24, 2010
In times of a lean economy, the New York personal injury law firm of Schwartzapfel Partners P.C. has stepped up its efforts to make sure needy Long Island residents have food for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Last year, Schwartzapfel Partners' lawyers and staff donated 250 pounds of food to the Long Island Harvest hunger relief organization. The amount of food donated by the firm this holiday season was closer to 400 pounds.
“As the need gets greater, so must the effort,” said personal injury lawyer Steven J. Schwartzapfel. "I'm proud of the way our people give back to their community."
The firm's entire staff contributed to the food donation. The firm is active in a variety of civic events and has contributed to more than 40 charities, foundations and community groups, including March of Dimes, Schneider Children’s Hospital, Habitat for Humanity and The Nature Conservancy.
Island Harvest is the largest Hunger Relief organization on Long Island. In addition to collecting and distributing food, the organization conducts educational programs to increase hunger awareness and reduce food waste. For two years, the organization has received a four star rating – the highest awarded – from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent evaluator of charities.
